have to say, I much prefer this more casual way of outfit blogging. It strips away the need to have beautifully and artfully shot photographs and 0% body fat. But let me know what you think :)
It's been really mild here recently, but the temperature finally dropped enough to justify cracking out the fur. This Mongolian faux fur gilet is from Asos and I really love it, although I find myself not wearing it nearly enough. I wore it over a black jumper from Dorothy Perkins with nice little leather shoulder details which of course you can't see here, jeans and my trusty - and ancient - suede over the knee boots from Office.
On the right I'm wearing an uncharacteristic amount of colour. The little orange bag is a Zara number and was my go-to in summer aaaand do we even need to talk about the bright pink crepe biker of dreams? It's from Topshop. It's my baby. I recommend you buy it. Although I would say sizing runs a little large and I kind of wish i had sized down, but you know, at least I can pack on the fuzzy jumpers underneath once winter starts to bite.
Clearly I'm taking ill-advised outfit shots on my way out the door here; headphones out, ready to run. I've got on my favourite neon Cos knit, over a graph print tee from Primark and with a super comfy sort of soft jersey material blazer from Stradivarius that I picked up in Málaga.
In both these pictures I'm wearing super comfy black knit pants from Forever 21 that I recommend whole-heartedly: they are just about as comfy as leggings but they're trousers! And we all know that leggings are not trousers, so you can safely avoid that fashion faux pas without sacrificing on comfort. Yay. Oh and they were super cheap too. On top is my favourite burgundy leather jacket from H&M and a pale blue sleeveless top with floral detail and illusion mesh at the neck from good old Toppers.
More pink jacket love. This time over a white top (H&M) and some excellent high waisted trousers from Missguided. They work well on those of us who have large rumps and small waists - snug fit on the derrière usually means baggy waist but the fit on these works pretty well for me. But I did have to chop about 3 inches off the bottom because I am short. Or the legs run long. You decide.
